Recognized for her unique artistic curiosity in world-class performances spanning four centuries of repertoire, the “pure-voiced soprano” (New York Times) Lauren Snouffer is celebrated as one of the most versatile and respected artists on the international stage. Snouffer is a favorite of both living composers and the leaders of historically informed performances of 17th and 18th century repertoire. This summer, she made her Santa Fe Opera debut as La Musica in Monteverdi’s Orfeo (with a new orchestration by Nico Muhly).

On October 7, WFMT will broadcast Lauren Snouffer’s acclaimed performance in Handel’s Jephtha from Music of the Baroque.
